Read "The Latin Side of Horace Silver" reviewed by Jack Bowers

Robby Ameen: Diluvio

Read "Diluvio" reviewed by Jack Bowers

It's a given that wherever Grammy-winning drummer Robby Ameen goes, irrepressible rhythm is sure to follow. Diluvio, Ameen's third album as leader of his own ensemble, is clearly no exception to the rule. Ameen's half-dozen compositions are intrepid and lively, and even Gerry Mulligan's “Line for Lyons" and John Coltrane's “Impressions," which seal the album, are ...

Robby Ameen: Diluvio

Bill O'Connell and The Afro Caribbean Ensemble: Wind Off The Hudson

Read "Wind Off The Hudson" reviewed by Dan Bilawsky

Bill O'Connell has had plenty to say with his piano in recent times, basically knocking out a session a year for the Savant imprint. And with an exploration within the solo format, a trip with an augmented trio, and ventures promoting a medium-sized conglomerate of heavy-hitters, he's certainly traversed quite an expanse there. But, as Wind ...

Bill O'Connell: Jazz Latin

Read "Jazz Latin" reviewed by Angelo Leonardi

I tre protagonisti del disco--il pianista Bill O'Connell, il bassista Lincoln Goines e il batterista Robby Ameen--sono stati a lungo partner del flautista Dave Valentin, scomparso nel marzo 2017 a cui hanno già dedicato tributi. Sono musicisti di valore che si conoscono bene e ribadiscono un'appartenenza stilistica influenzata dalle musiche latine ma prettamente jazzistica. Il taglio ...

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
